Rental Firms Have Great Expectations

September 28, 2010

Rental Firms Report

Giant rental firms reported the greatest change in business expectations for 2004, probably because they reaped the best surprise last year. Only 37 percent of rental firms on the Construction Equipment Giants list forecast rising work volume in 2003, but when they reviewed the year early in 2004, a startling 73 percent of rental Giants reported actual increases in 2003 work volume. They carried enthusiasm into 2004, with 77 percent expecting work volume to increase this year. No rental Giants expect 2004 work volume to fall.
